George Gritzbach on Saturday

Right on the heels of his 17-date Summer Tour announcement, George Gritzbach and his band will be at Grumpy's tonight - Show starts at 9:30pm. Free tickets are available at a few businesses around Falmouth and Woods Hole.

From the website "A three-piece band--drums, bass, and guitar; The music is blues/R&B based, we play a good deal of funk and New Orleans. What distinguishes our live performances is a healthy dose of slide guitar and the addition of racked harmonica, as well as high quality original compositions. We play up-tempo material with the addition of a ballad or two per set. We consider ourselves a high-energy R&B dance band. That being said, we have the flexibility to go unplugged and play an acoustic set for a concert or coffee house crowd. At this time, we go by the George Gritzbach Band. "

And from the latest Press Release:
"This summer promises to be another great run of shows," Gritzbach said. "We’ll be playing some Memphis and New Orleans funk inspired material and a lot of old-school Chicago blues standards. There is an appetite on the Cape for some hard rocking music and we aim to fill that bill."
Notable appearances for Gritzbach include a July 11th appearance at the Reggae, Rhythm & Blues Series at Aselton Park in and an August 17 appearance at the venerable North River Blues Festival in Marshfield, MA. Gritzbach and his band will also play multiple shows at the Onset Bay Blues CafĂ©, The Wellfleet Beachcomber and Grumpy’s in Falmouth.
